Ever since Samanta has become the busy heroine in Telugu with hit ‘Ye Maya Chesave’ and later a special appearance in ‘Erra Gulabeelu,’ there is a section of Tamil media which linked her with director Gautham Menon. They were calling that Samanta is very much under the control of Gautham.
She was literally at loggerheads with Aravam media maintaining a cold war. Samanta is not interacting with Tamil press and a deafening silence is the only answer for any number of questions posed by them. When Gautham had cast Samanta as heroine in tri-lingual film, more questions stood before the lucky girl. She is still maintaining the same silence unable to excuse them.
